: SUICIDE OF A NATION

Tuesday's Documentary
GERMANY BEFORE HITLER
An impression of the years which began with the fall of the Kaiser and ended with Hitler's appointment as Chancellor. They are remembered now as the Golden Twenties, a time of change and experiment, of horror films and jazz, of provocative art and spectacular night life, of Hindenburg and the men who came to Weimar fifty years ago to inaugurate Germany's first experiment in democracy.
But they were also the years which saw the birth of a new German army and the reorganisation of industry, the growth of new political parties and the economic disaster of the World
Slump.

: NAIRN AT LARGE

3: Cornish Pastures
Ian Nairn looks at the changing face of Britain
The rest of Britain looks at Comwall from the complacency of a deck-chair and through the tinted lenses of its sunglasses. Ian Nairn believes that the real nature of the county is industrial rather than tourist and that it is in danger of becoming, apart from brief summer months, a ghetto for the retired and elderly.
Nairn argues that Cornwall should become an overspill community, taking people away from the crowded South-East. Its quiet coves should be preserved-if necessary by barring the motor car. The big tourist attractions should be blatant and unashamed: why not a Fun Palace at Land's End?

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
